    • Texas Stars Finals

      The Stars showed their first signs of struggle in their playoff series against Toronto but managed to eke out a victory in game 7. Now it's the Calder Cup finals (the minor league equivalent of the Stanley Cup) against the St. John's IceCaps. The two teams have nearly identical records during the post-season with 11 wins and five losses, however the Stars have scored more goals over their 16 playoff games. The IceCaps' Andrew Gordon is on fire in playoff points with eight goals and eight assists. The Stars have a two-prong answer to that: Mike Hedden and Travis Morin have 10 goals and 20 assists between them. The first two games of the best-of-seven series are here at home. Sun. & Mon. June 8 & 9, 7:30pm. $20-80.
